Programs: MEOW places approximately 1000 - 1500 animals into permanent homes each year. Adoption fees from $65 to $95 help defray the cost of care for the animals. Donations from interested individuals, organizations and business provide additional financial support. Our application process ensures that every adopted animal is placed in an environment where there is appropriate space, human contact, and a commitment to safeguard and care for the animal for its entire lifetime. Our standards are high. The welfare of the animals is paramount in the placement process. Cats and kittens come from various sources and situations: orphans found under a deck, a stray or abandoned cat crying at the door, someone has developed allergies or is moving to a place where the cats are not welcome. Some come from the rescue community, finding tame cats and kittens feeding with feral colonies. Newborn or senior, healthy, ill or injured, all are welcome at MEOW . Incoming cats and kittens are examined for general health, illness, injury, parasites and tested for feline viral diseases and provided appropriate medical care. Daily care of cats and kittens is done both in the shelter and in the foster homes of volunteers, sometimes involving bottle-feeding orphans, often requiring intensive medical care of ill animals. MEOW provides a safe haven and socialization as well as proper nutrition and a clean environment while the animals await adoptive homes. Our volunteers speak with the public, interview prospective adopters, and provide education concerning the care of pets on such subjects as spaying/neutering, introducing a new pet into the family, addressing behavioral issues, proper daily care and well-cat/kitten care. Each year MEOW is faced with the impossible and each and every day we recommit ourselves to something we truly believe in, the motto we adopted at our inception,"all nine lives are precious".

With respect and compassion for all animal life, MEOW promotes lifelong relationships between people and companion animals, providing shelter and care for each precious life until adopted into a forever home.
Since our beginnings, we have rescued and placed more than 18,000 pets in loving homes. We currently are caring for over 100 kittens and several senior and special needs cats in foster homes.

MEOW is a wonderful shelter. I moved to the area three years ago, after recently losing my cat, and was not prepared to get another, but wanted to get my fix and help people-less cats find their homes. After researching shelters online, I applied to MEOW as a volunteer. What I saw and continue to ... more »
I found out about Meow when I needed to help an abandoned cat. They were so nice and helpful that I adopted my next cats from them. When I retired I became a volunteer. I can vouch for the high level of care each cat gets here. There is no ther shelter like it... more »
